What are the financial implications of mobile coverage obligations? - PolicyTracker: spectrum management news, research and trainingPolicyTracker: Mar 2019
a mobile operator could argue they are providing coverage if signals can be received in a given area. But if the regulator were to insist on stringent QoS such that 95% of calls were successful and customers could achieve 2 Mbps download speeds, the cost increase could be enormous.

NFL sets stadium Wi-Fi/cell standards - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global
Excerpt: The NFL is requiring all league stadiums to meet newly crafted minimum Wi-Fi and cellular standards by the end of the 2014 season, the latest move by America’s top sport to improve the in-game experience. Owners were informed of the new requirements at their meeting in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. The standards will push stadiums to ensure minimum capacity levels for concurrent downloads, uploads or browsing, while setting similar thresholds for phone calls and texting. A league official declined to divulge any specifics on the new standards — such as, for example, how many fans would be able to simultaneously upload a comment to Twitter or download videos.

Qualcomm: Your in-home small cell may be opened to the public - FierceBroadbandWireless
"Instead of restricting use of those femtocells to certain customers, Qualcomm envisions broadening access. "A little bit of that signal leaks outside and starts to provide little pieces of coverage outdoors. And if enough of it is happening indoors, then pretty soon you end up with pretty good outdoor coverage," said Grob, who was quoted by CIO."

"Operators' indoor coverage can be stunningly poor, necessitating the need for dedicated coverage solutions that go beyond the macrocell network, according to a recent study.

US LTE operators achieve 4G success by focusing on coverage and multi-device strategies - Insight - News | Analysys Mason Jan 2013
"US operators initially marketed LTE by highlighting its speed benefits, and kept the same pricing plans as 3G services in order to entice users onto the new networks, including customers on flat-rate plans. AT&T and Verizon have both shifted their pricing strategies in order to increase revenue. Initially, both operators largely eliminated flat-rate pricing plans in favour of tiered pricing, and in 2012 both operators implemented a multi-device, tiered data package pricing strategy. Operators are still adopting the strategy of 'no premium for LTE', with the only difference between a 3G subscription plan and an LTE plan being the device used. Instead of charging more for the LTE service, operators want to connect additional devices for a nominal fee (usually USD10–30) to encourage users to switch to larger data plans. This strategy appears to be working"
